Tin Metal, Shots, 8 mesh
Product Code: TINSHOT
Tin metal, 8 mesh tin shots. These high purity Tin (Sn)pieces may be used in chemistry experiments, metallurgy experiments.
Easily melts and can be used for soldering or as a protective layer on other metals.
Tin shots may be a valuable addition to your collection of metals.
Ordinary tin is a silver-white metal, is malleable, somewhat ductile, and has
a highly crystalline structure. Due to the breaking of these crystals, a "tin
cry" is heard when a bar is bent. This metal resists corrosion from distilled
sea and soft tap water, but can be attacked by strong acids, alkalis, and by
acid salts. Tin acts as a catalyst when oxygen is in solution and helps
accelerate chemical attack. Tin can be highly polished and is used as a
protective coat for other metals in order to prevent corrosion or other chemical
Tin has a very low melting point and because of this characteristic it is
good for experiments comparing melting points as well as others. This tin
shot is perfect for collection or functional use as well.
